This little guy of ours is something else. We honestly do NOT know where half the stuff he says comes from. Really. It's just totally out there. Here are some quotes from him from the past couple months:

"My Sunday School teacher told me I could call you Joel and Kendall."

A conversation:
"Mommy, why does Daddy scratch?"
"I don't know..."
"Because that's just what big boys do!"
"I'm a milkman. I bring milk to teeny, teeny babies."

"Mommy, someday when I'm a girl, I'm gonna eat Frosted Mini Spooners!" (he actually talks about becoming a girl quite often...)

"When I go to work, I gargle. Because I have stuff in my throat: bugs and grasshoppers and squirrels..."
"Mom and Dad, look at the hair on my arms! It's because I'm growing so much. Sometimes my hair hurts."

One day while eating lunch with JUST me.."I'm just chillin' with my girl."
While Joel was watching football one evening, "Someday when I'm big I'll watch football. And someday I'll have a remote."

And this morning, while playing with some sticky tack on a photo..."God sent me to do this."
And here's a video of one way we've been 'getting rid of excess energy' during the cold winter. Because literally, he is BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS.

What a GOOD mom you are to write all those down! :) He'll appreciate that humor later in life, when he's got his own little one that's making up his own hilarious one-liners! :) Ollie is quite the character!

"Someday, when I get bigger, I'm going to eat jalapeno jelly with my Daddy." -- That's one from him at our house.

You will be glad you wrote these down! My girls are now asking me to read from my little notebook of their quotes. It's pretty funny!
